Blueberry Sparkling Sangria Recipe
This bubbly, fruity sangria is very easy to make, and is quite delicious. Blueberries are native to North America and in addition to their fantastic antioxidants a serving of blueberries provides 24% of your daily Vitamin C. The Chambord adds in a nice raspberry tartness.
If you keep frozen blueberries in your freezer not only are you always ready to whip some of this up, but the blueberries also act as natural ice cubes floating in your glass.
1 750ml bottle sparkling wine
4 shots Chambord raspberry liqueur
2 cups blueberries
Pour the bottle of sparkling wine into a pitcher. Add in the Chambord and the blueberries. You want to serve this immediately so the bubbles don't diminish. Alternately, you can soak the Chambord and blueberries overnight first - so the flavor of the blueberries gets into the liquid - and then add that to the sparkling wine right before you serve it.
In the below photo I used Asti Spumanti which is an Italian sparkling wine - this gave it a sweeter flavor. If you like a more dry style, then certainly go for a traditional French Champagne instead.
You can also make this by the glass! Use one shot Chambourd, toss in a handful of blueberries then top off the glass with sparkling wine! Delicious, fruity, refreshing and antioxidant rich :)

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
